>>7581480 >I haven't read Light in August though- that's generally named among his best, and I think it's supposed to be the easiest of the four.
I found it the hardest. It is a LOOOOONNNNNNG book. Not just length, but every goddamn thing in the book needs a 10 page description. It's good, just gets really annoying how he feels the need to describe every little goddamn thing.
>>7581498 When you do read Sound and the Fury, keep running family tree going on the blank pages at the beginning of the book. It's really rewarding to figure out how all the characters relate to one another on your own.
What is striking abt Faulkner, why he's easily one of my fav authors is the way he deals with memory. A stream of consciousness that isn't masturbatory or self indulgent but something you are entirely part of. The story unfolding through intersecting streams of memory, the network of connections between the rivulets of detail in life
